FRANKFORT, Ky. -- Franklin County High School students were robbing banks, being evicted and nursing babies recently - all within the confines of the school cafeteria.
The actions were part of a poverty simulation put on by the Homeless and Housing Coalition of Kentucky. It was the organization's first event at a school.
Students in the social studies department were offered extra credit to attend the simulation, and teachers were offered two hours of training credit. Participation was voluntary.
